This information was confirmed by the head of political department of the DPR Army Eduard Basurin.
Earlier, Saur-Mogila, which is a mound, was passed back and forth from the militia back to the National Guard, and vice versa. Before, from this highest point of the Donetsk region representatives of the Ukrainian army could control the movement of militia troops.
According to journalists from LifeNews, interception of Saur-Mogila can be considered a turning point in the course of the military activities. Now, militias will observe from this point the redeployment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Practically, this means that the DPR troops have banked another victory in their attempt to surround the National Guard.
